We’ve all lied before, whether it was about something small or something big – the fact remains that we’ve all lied to someone in our life time. I have regretted lying many times; it never ends well. But the lies I regret most are the ones I have told myself. Far too many times I have missed out on opportunities or got stuck in bad situations because I lied to myself.
There’s nothing worse than lying to yourself because you only end up hurting yourself. We fear the truth, when in actual fact it’s our own lies we should fear. The lies we tell ourselves have the ability to hold us back in life.
Remember, in order to be able to love and respect others you need to be able to love and respect yourself first; and you can’t do that if you can’t even be honest with yourself. Honesty is always the best policy; the truth is way less complicated than the consequences of a lie. Love yourself enough to be honest with yourself.
